Im about to have an antenna raising party and want to do it rite the first
time   ha ha 

I have a TA33  and a   440  23el 14'boom  available for a roof mounted tower.

I can have a max of 5 foot spacing   and have to put the TA33 on the bottom.

at that close distance shud I stack them as parallel booms or I read
somewhere to offset them 90/deg to avoid coupling.

Sounds like a busted call to me.

Well - I did - and it doesn't work well for us. Got within the state,
and that was about it. I think that if you're interested in a good
accurate reading - do it the legit method , get the USGS maps and
work it out. By the way - Decibel Products has a calculator that you
use with the USGS maps, and is slick as whale blubber. de KL7HF

Gentlemen -

A patent copy is available for $3 US and provides the level of information
necessary to "reduce to practice".

There are many Internet based search engines that will locate a patent by
the inventor's name. The entire 1995 patent portfolio is online from the
PTO (abstracts only).
